Te duo designed a Nantucket shingle-style home, a style that is inherently understated but is also quite elegant and dramatic when proportioned correctly. FRONT AND BACK Like most walkout homes, the front elevation stands in stark contrast to the rear elevation. In front, one could be forgiven to think that dormers had simply been added to the existing ranch in order to add a new second foor. Yes, the front elevation is transformed to the shingle style.
